Club Night 4th March 20

March 05, 2020

Welcome to the blog. Decent crowd for a wet and windy night, good to see Bev a Lime Meadow Virgin as a spectator. Plenty of musicians tonight, 15 in total so we went for a 2 then 1 routine regarding songs. Here's an overview of what was played. As usual go to Dave's videos of the evening for a more comprehensive look at events.

I was in the Graveyard Slot and played Cocaine.

Paul was all booted and suited with a bow tie no less. His theme of course was James Bond he played the James Bond theme to perfection. Great stuff.

On came the Silver Fox. with some McLean and Prine and of course a bit of Ralph.

Good to see Ted and Anne back in the fold and the played a medley as well as Lord Franklin which they played fairly well. (In Joke)

On came Tony , who again we had not seen for a while and he treated us to some good old blues !!

A full eclipse of Sunrise was with us minus a string on Sandy's acoustic bass, they played us Where do we go from here, and Rio.

Doug, another long lost friend, was with us and gave us House of Mercy and John Riley. Good to see you Don.

GT in full vocal excellence, was next and we had that well known shepherds song,' I know i'll never find another Ewe',  and Love Somebody.

We moved on to Curtis who sang a Jonny Tilston song and Kites which I hadn't heard for years.

Electric Graham sprang up and gave us 'Fool if you think it's over' and the moody 'Wish you were here. Nice one!!

Geoff gave us distant drums and got us all playing along with a great two chord sing a long. We should do more of this.

Anoher returnee to the fold in the shape of Don gave two very good instrumentals on his wonderful vintage guitar. One was call Turntail the other Ermatrude.

Shy Eddie sang us Sunnyside of the street and the rousing Galway Girl.

Pluto Swint, which tonight was , Dave and Stefan gave us another bit of John Prine and the wonderful Tennessee Waltz.

Good to see Polly, our only solo female. Where are you all !! Polly sang us White Dress, and Wayfaring stranger. Beautifully I may add.

Well that was everybody, and we went round again as far as we could.
